Indigenous filmmaker Hopinka’s Standing Rock is a movement, a love, loss, witnessed as come and gone by its participants. Standing Rock is a family disbanded. It’s anti-relationality festering beneath the surface just a little too long until it turns into hurt. A desperate and anxious need to reconstruct the events at Standing Rock in visuals and stories, hoping to find truth amongst multiple realities. It’s a begrudging return to every day because how could one ever return to the monotony of school, work, and other trivial matters having been part of a collective one.
